Hi. I'm planning to take a bus from Thessaloniki to Athens, as my goal is to see the countryside. Once I arrive in Athens, it's unclear to me if the neighborhood around the bus station is relatively safe for a solo female hotel stay. Anyone have experience staying in this neighborhood? If yes, what was the vibe?
The day after, I'm renting a car (the rental agency is picking me up and driving me to the main highway) and heading to Kefalonia, so it's not necessary for me to be in the heart of Athens but I want to be convenient to the bus station so I'm not spending more to get somewhere.
